Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that Moscow valued its ties with countries in Latin America, Asia, and Africa and was ready to offer modern weapons to its allies, Reuters reported.

The report said that Putin used a speech at an arms show near Moscow to boast of Russia’s advanced weapons capabilities and declare its willingness to share technology with like-minded countries.

“(We) are ready to offer our allies the most modern types of weapons, from small arms to armored vehicles and artillery to combat aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles,” the international news agency quoted President Putin as saying during an opening ceremony of the “Army-2022” forum near Moscow.
